Repository archive URL seems to have changed, leading to wrong tarballs being generated
Initially reported by
sangy on IRC (@sangy ?)
In previous releases, this URL:
would return a tarball for the tagged release.
With v10.7.0rc6, it instead returns a tarball for master.
tags UI now points people at URLs of this form instead:
I know that we don't guarantee stable URLs outside of the API, but this strikes me as a bug because a previously-working URL is now serving the wrong content, rather than serving a 404 error. This is unexpected and sure to break a range of deployment and release automations in unexpected and hard-to-detect ways.
I recall we picked something relating to archives into v10.7.0rc6 - perhaps this is related? I'll do some digging.
